Getting through the checkpoint was a first time experience for me and I ended up pulling into the semi lane which was pretty funny. The government worker was sitting in a booth above my car roof (semi window height).

Attabad Lake‌‌

Wondering about witnessing an unreal lake, you must visit Attabad lake. This lake came into being due to a significant tragedy and landslide that occurred in 2010.

3) Lahore‌‌

If you are fond of history and antique stuff, Lahore is the best destination for you to visit in Pakistan. You wonder how this city can proffer you much valuable stuff to behold, let me exemplify this by giving specific examples. Lahore is the city of Mughals, and these Mughals have left tons of history behind them. This article is not enough to describe all the places in Lahore, but there are a few ones that I would like to share. Badshahi Mosque and Minar-e-Pakistan are one of the most fundamental destinations to visit in Lahore. Several other places are also worthy of visiting like Lahore Fort, Wagah Border, Jahangir's Tomb, Wazir Khan Mosque, etc.

4) Kalash Valley‌‌

Kalash valley keeps its place if we talk about the beauty of Pakistan. This valley has its own culture, traditions, and religious beliefs, but despite all these factors, this valley is worth having a glimpse of this beautiful scenery. Especially the most beautiful part of this valley is the traditional dress of the women in this valley. You will not find such a dress code in any part of the country and especially the headwear of these women that is hand made and rich with their culture.

5) Gorakh Hills‌‌

Gorakh hills are the best spot to stay if you are probing to pitch your tents. Gorakh hills are located in Sindh. However, they are two to three hours away from Dadu. You can commence your journey from Dadu if you want to stay at this place. You will surely get eye-catching experience from these hills and mountains. Talking about public transport then it is said there is no public transport opportunity, but you will indeed find some excellent guest house to get your back relaxed. These hills are considered as the beauty of southern Pakistan.
